I have to say, as much as I detest Tesla, at least 10,000 pounds is unambiguous, 5t would be quite so, is that tonne or ton, and if it’s the first, what does that even mean again?
Numerous industries have been revolutionized or indeed started by more often than not one company, often driven by one person at the top.
- Henry Ford revolutionised how cars were made.
- Boeing the Passenger jet industry
- Apple changed the mobile phone world,
- After half a century of talk, speculation and false starts to replace hydrocarbons use in the car industry, Tesla came along and has change the car industry forever by re-inventing the EV to make them "cool" and commercially attractive and also went a long way in dealing with the charging issues.
I'm not a fan of Apple, but acknowledge their contribution to the technology today, I think you'll have to acknowledge at some point Tesla has done the same.
Actually proof the hydrocarbon fuelled cars are on the way out (thanks mostly to Tesla) is the seemly weekly announcement of thousands of jobs that will be made redundant by 2025 from the various car companies of late. My rough count is 50,000 world wide by 2025. Obviously these are mostly jobs in Internal combustion engine and gear box development and manufacturing, but what we don't hear is the thousands of jobs in battery supply chain and other industry's.
